RaceJoy Ready

First, we hope you and your family are staying safe through the current pandemic. For the past 9 years, runners, walkers, sponsors, and volunteers have come together for our awesome event!  We have worked diligently to offer a safe environment for our race to continue amid the obstacles of COVID-19.  Due to current guidelines from local and state government, and for the safety of all parties involved, RaceTrac’s 2020 Run for Research 5K at The Battery Atlanta has gone VIRTUAL.  We greatly appreciate your support and participation! We will hope to see you in person next year!  In the meantime, please join us for our VIRTUAL 5K we are offering, for FREE, to everyone!  We hope you will still be able to get out and stay active, socially distant of course.

Our sponsors, participants, and volunteers are among the most generous and compassionate people anywhere and the safety of our team members and the communities we serve is RaceTrac’s number one priority. On behalf of RaceTrac and The Michael J. Fox Foundation, we are grateful for your support and understanding.

Once you register you will be emailed instructions on how to log your 5K run.  We will have a live leader board at the RESULTS page for you to see how you place other participants!  We ask that you join our Facebook group and tag any of your photos on social media with the #RaceTrac5K so we can follow along!
